Marcus Rashford hopes to reunite with ex-United teammate someday

Rashford hopes to one day team up with Angel Gomes.

Angel Gomes chose to leave Old Trafford this summer after making only 10 first-team appearances for the club.

He moved to Lille where the club loaned him out to Boavista for the season.

Both Rashford and Gomes came through United’s academy and the duo are still in contact.

“It’s a pleasure to talk about him, I think he’s doing very well at Boavista,” Rashford told A Bola.

“We speak regularly on the phone and I’ve congratulated him several times. It’s a good sign. He scored that incredible midfield goal that went viral. A great goal really! But with his talent nothing surprises me.

“He has incredible skill. Whoever plays alongside him realises he’s an exciting talent. Having trained with him since a very young age, it’s easy to see his success and to predict his bright future.

“Having him train with us at that time was a great experience and opportunity. I remember that during training he faced us all without fear, always anxious to have the ball.

“There are many things that unite us, we have had similar growth experiences.

“We lived in the same club houses and were in the same development system, aimed at selected players. We always got along very well.

“We lived together for about three years. I was able to provide guidance on my first experiences with the first team. This advice is still there, like he’s a younger brother.

“He has everything to reach the top. I always tell him. He’s an attacking midfielder, but personally I see him as someone who advances on the pitch comfortable with the ball.

“So he can play in other positions with equal success. It’s easy to play with him.

“It was something very natural, because he’s always looking for a quick pass, which surprises defenders and creates opportunities to score. I can thank him for a lot of goals.

“He’s a great team player and one of the things that I most hope will happen is to play with him again. It’s a wish that I trust will come true.”
